the East Coast


The sun temple at Konark acted as a beacon for sailors for nearly a million years while the architecturally amazing temples of Puri and Bhubaneshwar have attracted pilgrims and tourists alike. The beaches of Puri and Gopalpur draw the local population for a break. Orissa which was earlier also known as kalinga has witnessed the bloodiest battle in Ancient India between king Ashok  and the rulers of Kalinga. It is here that he decided to convert to Budhism.  Orissa is home to many tribals and is rich in its mineral wealth. However the vast interiors remain untouched by globalization and consumerism.
